Point. Shoot. Phax. Need to send a document right away? Why wait? Why search? Why pay? Don’t fax. Phax!

With Mobile Phax, use the camera on your iPhone to instantly capture a document and email it to as many people as you want. Plus, you always get a copy yourself.

We now support email-to-fax services! No phone update needed. You can now send documents directly to a fax machine using one of the following services: eFax, fax(.com), send2fax, greenfax, maxemailsend, myfax, rapidfax, smartfax, trustfax. Let us know if your provider is not on this list.

What makes Mobile Phax unique is the ease with which it allows you to take a picture of a document (however many pages), clean up the photos to make them look like high-grade photocopies, then send them to as many email addresses as you want—all from a single, simple app!

As soon as you take a photo of each page, the images are uploaded to the Mobile Phax servers where Mobile Phax’s patent-pending IMagePROVE(TM) technology automatically crops, rotates and scales the image as if you carefully photocopied each one. Your Phax is then converted to a PDF and sent to the recipients you type in or choose from your contact manager. The printed image looks nearly identical to the original — or even better with the iPhone 4.

You can even create Phaxes in Airplane Mode. Captured images are automatically queued and uploaded the next time you have an internet connection.

It’s not a picture; it’s a Phax, a high-quality copy of a document that looks better than anything you’ve been faxed.


The initial purchase gives you 50 Phaxed pages, regardless of how many Phaxes they are split into. To send more pages, you will need to buy Phax Packs: 100 pages for $9.99 (10 cents/page) or 500 pages for $24.99 (5 cents/page).


- Easy workflow; capture documents with a click per page

- IMagePROVE automatically crops, deskews, and creates a grayscale image for easy reading and clarity

- Automatic PDF conversion

- Send document to one or more email recipients; always receive a copy yourself

Works just fine...

Once you press send, the fax actually goes through in about a minute. Then you get a couple emails confirming the fax, and a link to see the PDF of your document, which I suppose was acceptable, but not great.

I have four complaints:

1) Needs the ability to use files already saved on your iPhone.

2) Incorporate an editing program for the user to tweak images before faxing, rather than leaving it up to the program to do this for you without showing you the final result until after the fax has already been sent.

3) Please tell would be buyers they need iPhone 3Gs models, since the camera on the original iPhone and iPhone 3G doesn't have macro capability, while the 3Gs does. This is critical for being able to get large enough and properly focused document scans.

4) Please tell would be buyers up front in the first paragraph that the term "fax" only applies to people with existing online fax accounts from Fax.com, or eFax, etc...otherwise you can't send a newly "scanned" document from your iPhone to a standard fax machine as strongly suggested by the App's name and by the first few paragraphs describing the app.

So, if you don't already have an online fax account with an e-fax company, which will run you $10 a month, then this app is simply a glorified email program that they charge you per page for. The iPhone's built in camera app can do this for free, while ScannerPro for $7 does an exceptional job of producing multi-page PDFs for emailing, much better than this program could ever achieve.

The bottom line is that yes, this program does the trick on the go. However, would-be users need to have an active e-faxing account already established before they can start faxing from their iPhones to standard fax machines. However, to be fair, that disclaimer also remains true for any iPhone fax app at the moment. So, for now, this is probably the best solution available, in my opinion, that will hopefully only get better in future revisions.

5/5 stars

You CAN send to a fax machine

Mobile phax is a huge time saver and it works very well. For all the people saying you can't send to a fax machine.... You can! All you need is an account with an online fax service like efax.

This is NOT a fax, it is an email. You take a pic and the app 'improves' it and emails it out. And they charge you per page! For email!
